GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE COUNTRY:
The Kingdom of Bahrain is an archipelago of more than 30 islands in the Persian Gulf which looks back to a 5000-year-old history and culture. It is the location of ancient Dilmun, home to what was an important Semitic civilization in the Bronze Age and was later conquered by Babylonians and Persians. There are a lot of ruins, burial mounds and forts to explore throughout the country, but Bahrain has to offer a lot more.
It could be called the hidden pearl of the Middle East as it is a fascinating place with ancient UNESCO World Heritage sites which rub up against still-bustling bazaars and carpet shops while skyscrapers define the mosque-studded skyline.
Nowadays, Bahrain is a major oil-producing country and is now increasing the economic in the banking and tourism sectors, but till the 19th century it was worldwide well known for its exquisite pearls. It’s tolerant, permissive monarchy and the laid-back nature of its inhabitants combined to make it an attractive destination for rest and relaxation.
But the kingdom has a lot of attractions in abundance: from the high-octane glamour of the annual Formula 1 Grand Prix, to the charm of the historic quarter of Manama, Bahrain’s capital, to water sports, desert driving and restaurant hopping, as the Bahraini cuisine is largely influenced by different countries.
All in all, a trip to Bahrain will enrich your global cultural experience.
